New Turn in Death Investigation

Investigators confirm for WOWT 6 News that a man whose home caught fire this week died from a gunshot wound, not from the fire.

The fire happened in a mobile home complex 129th and West Maple late Tuesday night. Firefighters found 57-year old Craig Fuhrer critically wounded. He later died at a hospital.

Authorities are treating the case as a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They say an accelerant was used to start the fire at several locations.
